In honor of National Pollinators Week, the City of Minneapolis is offering free “seedles” to the city’s residents, available at farmers markets this week. Seedles are wildflower seed balls that help provide healthy plants – food and shelter for pollinators – in your yard and boulevard.
Pollinator populations are in sharp decline because of an ongoing loss of plants that feed and shelter and large-scale expansion of pesticide use by homeowners, landscapers, property managers and farmers.
Free seedles will be available today (Tues June 20th) and Saturday, June 24th (while supplies last) at the Midtown Farmers Market info booth. Read more about the City of Minneapolis’ Conservation of Bees Project on their website.
